there aer two ways to shave you rear roll blocks,

1, you can have them milled

2, get them close with your dremel, then take some sandpaper, put is on a piece of glass(or and flat surface) and sand them down......that is how i did it.....

Advantage: You don't have to pay bucko-bucks for the aluminum low roll center blocks ( Trinity, Speedtech), which are lower than the "losi low" ( basicly mid roll center )

.Can anyone post a tight carpet track set up?. The one I'm using is close Paul L on the losi site. But it doesn't seem to have enough steering for me...

akrcracer: are you runing stock or mod?

I ran it in stock on a tight track, it had WAY to much steering.

I did run it per the set-up sheet with the light oil & large pistons.

Spec 19 class. We call it super stock here in AK. I always have plenty of steering... I had good on power steering. It just lacked some off power steering..

The advantage is that it makes the car react faster and rotate a little better in the corners.

The max you can shave off is real close to .080" off of a Losi Low RC block.....if you go lower the rear arm will rub the chassis.

The first time I went it was ok but it still sucks b/c the area that your in has NOTHING is open over the thanksgiving weekend and everything closes at like 8pm. But you do have Denny's across the street if you want the WORST food ever semi-cooked. And forget trying to order a Pizza or something thats near impossible....if your going bring food with you or make sure you venture outside before it gets dark while some places will still be open. And bring parts the hobby shop seems to have nothing you would need in it.....but you do get to see some of the best racing around. Ohhh and dont forget the 35 and 45 yearold crack whores that frequent the hotel Bar..... But its the BEST RACE EVER
